Anne Christiansen Obituary

With heavy hearts, but endless loving memories, the family of “Annie C” announce her sudden, but peaceful passing on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at the age of 76 years.

Born in Lethbridge at the Galt Hospital on March 6, 1947, Anne was the youngest of three children born to Judith and Steve Ragan of Iron Springs. She spent her formative years on the family farm, and also in the town of Picture Butte, where she went to school and graduated from PBHS in the mid 1960’s.

Anne married, and gave birth to her son Kevin, and daughter Kathy. As well as being an involved and loving mother, Mom pursued a career of helping others – going to college and graduating as a Denturist. She opened her own Denture Clinic in Coaldale in the early 1980’s and became a staple of the small-town business core for over 35 years. Anne strived to make her customers happy and keep them smiling. She retired in 2020, and looked forward to a peaceful, content retirement.

Besides being generous and loving to all she met, Mom had a huge heart and love for all animals – especially dogs and cats, of which she had many!

Anne is predeceased by her mother Judith, father Steve, her brother John Ragan, and sister Betty Juris.

She is survived by her son Kevin (wife Deane), plus many countless cousins, nieces and nephews, special friends and family members who loved her for her generous, spunky, (and spicy!) attitude and lust for life. She will be greatly missed by many.

It is not the beginning, or the end that is important. It’s the days in between that will always count the most.

You can rest now, Mom.

As per Anne’s wishes, a small family gathering will take place on Monday, February 5, 2024, with a Celebration of Life to be planned in the very near future, which family and friends can attend.

In lieu of flowers and/or gifts, Anne has requested to please make a small donation to the Alberta Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) at  or the Lethbridge and District Humane Society or any animal support group of your choice.
